Naked.

Time slips by into an empty cup
It's passing by it's filling up
A day went by that I loved her
To the wind I threw all caution
Believing that I knew her
I sunk my world into her now
And here I go again
Standing here on my own
Yeah here I go again
Dancing life's dance alone
Don't want to dance alone

Does true love make you immortal?
The feeling swells as you plunge deep within her
Sealing words in a whisper
How loud we scream when our bodies are in motion
You're damned when you give up your wants
I said you're damned when you give up your dreams
I said you're damned when you give all your trust
And she's not right there standing next to me

I said here I go again
Standing here on my own
Yeah here I go again
Dancing life's dance alone
Oh wanna tell you bout it
Here I go again
Standing here on my own
Yeah here I go again
Dancing life dance alone
Don't want to dance alone

Don't want to dance alone i feel naked and empowered
Don't want to dance alone I said naked and devoured

Damn' waking from a dream of this lady
And now I see things that remind me
I'd rather die than pay for affection
A piece of nothing is not what I live for
Damn' I can finally see why you're leaving
Everything you ever did had a reason
And now the reason's clear
You amaze me
I still believe in love
Don't want to dance alone
Don't want to dance alone

The final slap I've awaken
To the truth I wish I had listened
By love's bright light I was blinded
But now I see cause my eyes are wide open
We're better off saying goodbye
I know we're better off saying goodbye
I think we're better off saying goodbye
I know we're better off saying goodbye
I'd rather dance alone

Frank settled down in the Valley,
and he hung his wild years on a
nail that he drove through his
wife's forehead.

He sold used office furniture out
there on San Fernando Road and
assumed a $30,000 loan at
15 1/4 % and put a down payment
on a little two bedroom place.

His wife was a spent piece of used jet trash
Made good bloody-marys, kept her mouth
shut most of the time, had a little Chihuahua
named Carlos that had some kind of skin
disease and was totally blind.

They had a thoroughly modern kitchen;
self-cleaning oven (the whole bit)
Frank drove a little sedan.
They were so happy.

One night Frank was on his way home
from work, stopped at the liquor store,
picked up a couple of Mickey's Big Mouth’s.
Drank 'em in the car on his way to the
Shell station; he got a gallon of gas in a can.

Drove home, doused everything in
the house, torched it.
Parked across the street laughing,
watching it burn, all Halloween
orange and chimney red.

Frank put on a top forty station,
got on the Hollywood Freeway
headed North.

Never could stand that dog.

ok flyboy, figure this one without an interWeb search:

"Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on.
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.
Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long.
Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control.
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul.
Well I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned:
When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned.

Well they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them.
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem.
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
they will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.

When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon.
Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon.
And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night:
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right,
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right."

just hit the new fiona on my disc player in the home office.

"One man, he'd disappoint me
He'd give me the gouge and take my glee
Now every other man I see
Reminds me of the one man who disappointed me

Wait 'till I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
Yeah, keep turnin' that chin
And you will see my face as I figure how to kill what I cannot catch

So I say 'and on I go'
To another one who disappoints me so

The next one up: a contemptible snob
He lived to put things in their place
He did a commendable job
He put himself so low he can hardly even look me in the face

Wait 'till I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
Yeah, keep Turin' that chin
And you will see my face as I figure how to kill what I cannot catch

Oh, he made my blood just burn
I flipped so far I thought that I would not return

But the last one I had was getting my hopes up
I might have been a little fast to dismiss
I think he let me down when he didn't disappoint me
He didn't always guess right but he usually got my gist

Wait 'till I get him back
I'm gonna bring him home and I'll watch him unpack
Keep Turin' that chin
And you will see my face is fixed on the one I'm gonna get back

Gonna get him back
I am
I'm gonna get him back"

Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise." Just that one song. On repeat for 4 hours now.
why am i not surprised?

speeking of SN69 and like that, i've had a few APC songs on repeat for more than 4hr (waking time) at once, on many occasions.

particularly, "magdalena" and "will i am" (william).

And this one is far prettier.

Listen to this entire work in a darkened room over and over and over. Yes,...I have:

Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won't you say something
I need to get my bearings
I'm lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Hallways... always

I'll always want you
I'll always need you
I'll always love you

And I will always miss you

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Come here
No I won't say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I'm gonna make it leave
Come here
I've got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears

I'm haunted
(By the lives that I have loved)
I'm haunted
(By the promises I've made)
I'm haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune

APC is cool but does not compare to Tool, imho. Lateralus kills my face every day. I once listened to that album for 14 years straight.

BFF. next:

"This is our last goodbye
I hate to feel the love between us die
But it's over
Just hear this and then i'll go
You gave me more to live for
More than you'll ever know

This is our last embrace
Must I dream and always see your face
Why can't we overcome this wall
Well, maybe it's just because i didn't know you at all

Kiss me, please kiss me
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation
You know it makes me so angry 'cause i know that in time
I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

Did you say 'no, this can't happen to me,'
And did you rush to the phone to call
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind
Saying maybe you didn't know him at all
You didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know

Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
Burning clues into this heart of mine
Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories
Offer signs that it's over... it's over"

I remember reading an interview with Tool. They said they were really taking their time w/ Lateralus, trying to make it perfect, kind of like how Metallica did with The Black Album, which sucks, BTW.

Tool is coming out a new album this year, I think.
i think im gonna go see tool at coachella. too bad tickets are going to cost me a kidney.

Cohen. This one is far younger:

sometimes I get the feeling
that I won't be on this planet
for very long
I really like it here
I'm quite attached to it
I hope I'm wrong
all I really wanna say:
you're the reason I wanna stay
I loved you before I met you
and I met you just in time
'cause there was nothing left

I sat here on my suitcase
in our empty new apartment
'til the sun went down
and I walked back down the stairs
with all my bags and drove away
you must be freaking out

all I know's I gotta be
where my heart says I oughta be
it often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things I feel

don't change
your plans
for me
I won't
move to
L.A.
the leaves
are falling
back east
that's where I'm going to stay

you have made me smile again
in fact, I might be sore from it
it's been awhile
I know we've been together
many times before
I'll see you on
the other side

but don't change
your plans
for me
I won't
move to
L.A.
the leaves
are falling
back east
that's where I'm going to stay

all I really wanna say:
you're the reason I wanna stay
but destiny is calling and won't hold
and when my time is up
I'm outta here

all I know's I gotta be
where my heart says I oughta be
it often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things
I feel

I love you, goodbye
I love you, goodbye...

this is NOT my fault, you MADE me do it.

"lonely as a dry and used orchard
spread over the earth
for use and surrender.

shot down like an ex-pug selling
dailies on the corner.

taken by tears like
an aging chorus girl
who has gotten her last check.

a hanky is in order your lord your
worship.

the blackbirds are rough today
like
ingrown toenails
in an overnight
jail---
wine wine whine,
the blackbirds run around and
fly around
harping about
Spanish melodies and bones.

and everywhere is
nowhere---
the dream is as bad as
flapjacks and flat tires:

why do we go on
with our minds and
pockets full of
dust
like a bad boy just out of
school---
you tell
me,
you who were a hero in some
revolution
you who teach children
you who drink with calmness
you who own large homes
and walk in gardens
you who have killed a man and own a
beautiful wife
you tell me
why I am on fire like old dry
garbage.

we might surely have some interesting
correspondence.
it will keep the mailman busy.
and the butterflies and ants and bridges and
cemeteries
the rocket-makers and dogs and garage mechanics
will still go on a
while
until we run out of stamps
and/or
ideas.

don't be ashamed of
anything; I guess God meant it all
like
locks on
doors."

Aw man, Jeff Buckley was GREAT

and destined for BIGGER THINGS. Shame.

..A final offering before the sweet release of slumber. It's not deep (or is it?). I just like it. On my top 10 list:
You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.

The Bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall.

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day.

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below.

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan.
